Initially configured for desktop computer applications, the Cool Cover family of cooling products for RIMM modules will eventually expand to include units for cooling video and modem boards. It’ll also find its way into CPU and other electronic modules needing to solve thermal, mechanical and EMI challenges.Cool Covers are thermal spreaders that contact multiple memory devices on a pc board for heat transfer. They also serve to protect the chips during shipping and handling while adding mechanical stability to the modules. The spreaders work in concert with the firm’s CSP Pad interface material, which is said to offer the greatest compression of any gap-filling interface material. It also absorbs tolerance stack-up without excessive stress to the ICs while ensuring high thermal conductivity. The units consist of two Cool Covers with interface material.
